The East Bridgewater Police Department is
proud to offer Project Lifesaver to the
residents of East Bridgewater.
The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to locate and rescue missing persons that suffers from Autism and Alzheimer’s. Project Lifesaver relies on proven radio technology and a specially trained search and rescue team. Those that are enrolled in the Project Lifesaver program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. When caregivers notify the local Project Lifesaver agency that the person is missing, a search and rescue team responds to the wanderer's area and starts searching with the mobile locater tracking system. Search times have been reduced from hours and days to minutes. In over 1500 searches, there have been no reported serious injuries or deaths. Recovery times average less than 30 minutes. The Project Lifesaver team is specially trained, not only in search and rescue and the use of the electronic tracking equipment, but also in the methods necessary to communicate with a person who suffers from Autism and Alzheimer’s or a related disorder. Locating the individual is only part of the mission. The person who is located will be disoriented, anxious, and untrusting. The Project Lifesaver team knows how to approach the person, gain their trust and put them at ease for the trip home. The program is seven years old. It currently supports over 580 agencies in 40 states and Canada. 54 million people have Project Lifesaver coverage in their community.

Is Your House Number Clearly Visible?
Visible numbers are vital when there is an emergency call for fire, police, or the ambulance. Trying to find the right house can cause a delay in providing service. The numbers on your home or business must be large enough to be seen from the roadway in all types of weather and lighting conditions. Put them directly on or immediately by the front door. If the structure is set too far back from the road, place the number at the entrance to the driveway. Make them large enough to be read from a moving vehicle. Individual apartment or condo doors should also be clearly numbered or lettered as well. It is a wise investment that could save your life. On too many occasions, police, fire and rescue personnel have wasted precious time trying to find the exact location of an emergency because the homes and businesses were poorly marked -- or not marked at all.
Here are some tips to properly display your house number:
· Place large, easy to read numbers on an area of your house or business most visible from the street.
· If your house is set back from the street, make sure you have numbers on a mailbox, post, or fence etc.
· Make sure the material you use will not fade or wear easily from weather.
· Choose colors that will not blend into the background they are displayed on.
